The End

And good riddance.

Seven years ago, Bill Campbell reigned over the largest city in the Southeast and took advantage of the perks of prosperity and prestige.

That summer, Atlanta’s mayor vacationed in Puerto Rico with his wife and children for four days before jetting off to Miami with a longtime girlfriend and then rendezvousing with another girlfriend in Paris.

>This summer, Campbell, 53, scrambled unsuccessfully to dodge a 30-month prison stint after his conviction on tax evasion charges.

Bill Campbell now heads to prison. What are the odds that he becomes someone’s girlfriend for a change?

    Living the American dream he was. Emphasis on the word “dream.” Just goes to show you CAN have it all… for how long though is anyone’s guess/downfall.

    I agree with Dignan – meanspiritedness just generates bad karma. And we all know what happens when you pump bad karma into the atmosphere. Careful Erick hon, Al Gore might make a really good movie about you.

    TTFN. Gotta run and perk me up some of those increasingly elusive perks…

    From what I understand, Mr. Campbell will be in a minimum-security-white-collar-type place. That type of violence is pretty rare there.

    On that topic though, it is absolutely inhumane that weaker male prisoners are subjected to repeated rapes in federal prisons. We all share the responsibility for that inhumane behavior.

    If you are in favor of some kind of corporeal punishment, then you should advocate for that, but sodomy for tax evasion, selling marijuana or a comparable offense is way, way over the top. Even Iran treats its prisoners better than that.

    Bird, I think we’d better look to the source before you go handing out responsibilty chits. Maybe American men are just really f-ed-up porn-fed sexual perverts and freaks with UTTERLY warped senses of sex and sexuality. Add criminal conduct to that mix, or vice versa, and you’ve got our federal prison system. Or JonBenet’s alleged killer. Now there’s a disgusting, warped man who oughta lanquish in a federal prison for a real long time – just for the child porn charges alone.

    Bill and Erick,

    What ever happened to the Surgeon General that wanted to teach us all to jack off?

    Clinton’s friend, Joycelen Elders?

    p.s. Does cotton picking and politics mix?
